POPCORN DAY!

The Addison Gateway would like to share a little history on popcorn. On January 19th, National Popcorn Day pops onto the scene with a crunch we all love to enjoy! The annual celebration recognizes a treat that satisfies munchies, day or night.   This time-honored snack can be sweet or savory, caramelized, buttered or plain, molded into a candied ball, or tossed with nuts and chocolate. However, it is enjoyed, enjoy it on National Popcorn Day, January 19th. The word “corn” in Old English meant “grain” or, more specifically, the most prominent grain grown in a region.

Colorful Christmas Tree with Star

Christmas Star!

Get ready to mark your calendar! On December 21, 2020, a RARE “CHRISTMAS STAR” will appear in the sky for the first time in 800 years.  A rare conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will make them look like a single point of light in the sky.  Four days before Christmas, the sky will offer a sight that hasn’t been seen since the middle ages.  The two largest planets in the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn, will be so close to one another in the sky on Dec. 21 that they will appear to be fused into a single point of light.

Holiday Cookies Homemade gingerbread cookies in a bowl

COOKIE DAY!

National Cookie Day on December 4th serves up a sweet treat. Bakers across the country warm up the ovens for holiday baking, and we enjoy giving tins of cookies to friends and family all season long.  We can thank the Dutch for more than windmills and tulips. The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word koekie, meaning “little cake.”Hard cookie-like wafers have existed for as long as baking has been documented. Not surprisingly, they traveled well, too. However, they were usually not sweet enough to be considered cookies by modern-day standards. The Addison Gateway would like to share how the origin of the

Happy Thanksgiving

THANKSGIVING DAY!

Thanksgiving Day is observed each year in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. The Addison Gateway would like to share a few Thanksgiving fun facts. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, amid the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November. First Thanksgiving In November 1621, after the first successful corn

HOMEMADE BREAD DAY!

On November 17th, homes will fill with warm, comforting aromas reminding us to slow down and enjoy National Homemade Bread Day. Yeast bread calls for us to slow down. We need to spend time with each other as we work the dough and let it rest and rise before baking. Quick breads allow a special treat to share and enjoy with coffee or tea.  Other homemade breads, such as donuts, pretzels, muffins, and biscuits, add variety to our everyday meals. And making them with friends and family brings joy and an opportunity to exchange recipes. Those who make homemade bread commit
